Mesterfjellet 1-10 School has been delivered from the contractor to the client on time and on budget!
Friday, May 9'th James Dodson was in Larvik to accompany the client and the contractors on an inspection tour of the completed school. The official hand-off will take place one week from now, and a period of testing of the school's technical and climate-control systems will begin. The outdoor playground elements are mostly complete and will also be finished shortly together with planting of new greenery. Ahlefeldts road in front of the school, is currently being upgraded to include bike and pedestrian paths and will also be completed before summer. Furniture and other equipment deliveries will start in the next weeks. Installation of the school's 4 major art projects will take place during the summer.
The overall finish and build quality of the school is great. A calm nordic palette of whites and greys with extensive use of wood finishes creates a blank canvas for the colorful creations of the students who will move in this August. The exception being our bright magenta staircase winding up through the central space.
New photos can be found in the Mesterfjellet Construction Photos page, and two new walk-through videos have been uploaded to the Video and 360 page. Professional photos will be taken this fall just before and after school starts. We can't wait to see how the students use the spaces that we have designed for them.
